Medical Device Imaging

Medical Device X-ray Inspection

3D X-Ray inspection, known as computed tomography, is a powerful tool for the medical device manufacturing industry as engineers strive to meet the high-quality standards demanded in the industrial medical device inspection and approval process.

 

Internal details of intricate devices can be inspected and measured non-destructively at our service lab located in Seattle, Washington.

Syringe Assembly

Delphi Precision Imaging uses high quality CT scanning equipment and tools to provide dimensional information about parts & assemblies. Using the Coordinate Measurement Module in Volume Graphics software, we are able to measure even the most difficult to access surfaces of this medical syringe assembly.

Silicone Catheter

Using micro-CT and Volume Graphics software, we can:

  • inspection internal details and verify quality

  • obtain internal dimensional measurements

  • measure wall thickness of internal channels

Nasal Spray Device CT

Industrial CT scan of a nasal spray device provides a highly detailed three-dimensional volume that can be sliced on any of the x, y or z axis. Voiding in one of the major seal regions can be seen in the image below. 

Post processing the CT data with Volume Graphics allows us to isolate individual components based on density for quality inspection, inspection of seals and reverse engineering.

Prescription Medicine

X-ray inspection allows manufacturers to examine capsules even while still in the packaging. Imaging can provide details on pill composition, foreign materials, voiding, fill level and more.

Prosthetic Leg

Industrial CT is being used to help the Department of Veteran's Affairs develop prosthetic limbs for our veterans. Custom manufacturing for each individual ensures a comfortable fit. 3D X-ray imaging helps the engineering team verifying all components are working as designed.
